Peel Regional Police (PRP) is warning the public of a new scam.

On Thursday (January 21), PRP shared a pair of texts where scammers posing as employees of service providers sent a link and urged the user to click on it to receive a refund or payment.

Police are urging residents who receive such messages NOT to open the link, and instead immediately delete the messages.
